“Best calamari”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2013

Had the best salt & pepper calamari here, friends took us as we wouldn't have thought of going and they tell us its very busy but we found the service and our food spot on. Will definitely be back for a breakfast some time and all the food coming out of the kitchen looked great. Why aren't there more deli's like this.

“Great deli and casual dining”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2013

Over the years I have visited this deli on many occasions and it has never disappointed. The food is fresh, delicious and the servings are generous. The staff are always helpful , friendly and courteous, even on the busiest of days. Some of the best coffee in Brisbane too. The adjoining deli has many irresistible treats and though your intention might be to pick up one or two things, undoubtedly you come away with more.

“A touch of Europe”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2013

Vince and Maria Anello have an incredible place. The food for breakfast and lunch is very special. And the deli which adjoins, if you can get out of there under fifty dollars you're not trying. It has been a stop for us for many, many years and it just keeps improving. A real taste of Italy, like every corner shop you've ever seen in the Italian countryside -- cheeses, olives, artichokes, a zillion sausages and all the condiments, canned tomatoes. I'd be here all day if I tried to note it all. Meals, next door, are unreal.

“Great service, great food.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2013

I am a local and have been to New Farm Deli for years, but have never given it much thought as it is an unassuming deli/cafe until recently when I visited twice - once with my mum and once by myself. When I was with my mum it was during the week and solo it was on a Saturday afternoon. Both times the cafe was busy but both times the communication was flawless as one of the staff met you either as you come in the door or after you have placed your order to seat you and deliver your food to right table. If there is a line for food, the many staff will come from behind the counter and start taking orders down the line.
The cafe serves a variety of food from Italian pastas and pizzas to sandwiches and salads. I used to have a fantastic roast beef sandwich from here that was like nowhere else. New Farm Deli also serves an awesome breakfast as well.
The Deli has a wide range of treats and treasures (for wan of a better word).
I cannot fault this place for what it is, best of all staff communication, and food. Staff were always friendly even when it was busy.
Well done!
